Did you know I’m still alive? Ha! I know, I know. I haven’t posted on this blog in ages. With Devotion‘s release and managing my other blog (www.KristieCook.com), I just haven’t had the time. But this is my blog about writing and sometimes I have something to say about writing or to writers specifically, so I don’t want to close it down. Today is one of those days. I’m often asked what advice I’d give to writers who are considering self-publishing. There’s a TON of advice I could give. But here’s the most important things I can tell you before … Continue reading

Holy schmoly, has it really been two months since I’ve posted here?! What a slacker I am! LOL Yeah, right. I assume most of you follow me on my main author’s blog (www.KristieCook.com) so you know what I’ve been up to – blog tours, Genesis release, holidays, pulling Devotion together for its upcoming release… Yeah, not much slacking going on here. I really haven’t had much to say in regards to writing, but I thought it was time to at least drop in and say “Hi!” and let you know that I’m still here. I’m in the midst of editing … Continue reading

I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted here. You might have seen on my main blog that July was a heck of a month. I’m starting to catch up…but I don’t think I can ever be fully caught up. I’m sure you know how that is… I just have a couple thoughts to share today. First, Karen at Coming Down the Mountain posted what I’ve decided to call The Writer’s Ten Commandments. They may not be your ten top commandments, but they certainly are things I need to keep in mind. I’ve printed and posted a copy to … Continue reading

My last two posts about going indie, when you want success and when you don’t care, has me thinking about what “success” exactly means. Because in those posts, we discussed whether you want a particular book to be successful and whether you want yourself to be successful as a writer. But what does that mean? Of course, everyone has their own definition of success. Those definitions often evolve over time as we change and grow and embark on new paths in our lives. Even if we look just at our writing. Because we might start out as writing only for … Continue reading

When I wrote about when not to go indie the other day, I mentioned a key phrase that I really didn’t get a chance to explore. And I think it’s really important to elaborate on it. “I don’t care if I’m successful.” I talked about why I think it’s a bad idea to self-publish a book just because it’s there and you have nothing else to do with it. You really want to be traditionally published but you have this one title that you’ve given up on. That’s a case of “I don’t care if this book is successful but … Continue reading
